  1. By coincidence, just heard today that friends of my daughter, a married couple in their early 40’s have had positive antibody tests which were done due to prolonged loss of taste and smell – since April – they were both quite ill at that time but of course back then you couldn’t get a test to check if you had Covid-19 unless you were in hospital, and they weren’t. These are the only confirmed cases I know of with people I know – loads of folk I know have self-isolated though and I guess will never know if they actually had it!

    Thanks Eric. That is interesting. But gosh, fancy losing your taste and smell for all that time! I would have thought that with how infectious it is, we would have heard of more. But glad we don’t. We go around terrified though lol.

  3. I have a couple of friends who are married and got it months ago. They seem fine now, just fatigued.

    My uncle, my cousin, and her mother got it as well. My uncle did not make it. My cousin is still alive I believe. I’m not close to them personally, so I don’t know the full story.

    Oh Sheree. So sorry to hear you know two who have died of it. Just awful. A d crikey – five! I think you live in a badly affected area though don’t you. In our town we had not beenn too badly affected, but now, cases are beginning to rise a bit. Scary!

  5. Actually, yes. My sister’s step-daughter contracted the virus from her grandmother, who, sadly, died from the virus. She seems to be okay, but it worries me as I have read about the long reaching effects people are left with even after having “recovered” from covid.

  6. It’s a strange world that we live in, my sister doesn’t go anywhere except for work more recently. Prior to that she was working from home. It was a shock for us all…she’s okay showing no symptoms (not to jinx anything) and the people who had it have isolated for 2 weeks 😊

  7. Yep. My BFF’s mother died from it, my children’s godfather’s mother had it and recovered. My niece and her 4 kids have it right now. My son’s coworker had it and the whole work force had to be tested… So far I’ve escaped but it is out there lurking.

  9. A neighbour of my mum son has it. As a young man (teenager) he is, fortunately fine and will soon return to school after having had to self-isolate for 2 weeks. A neighbour of mine very sadly died of COVID several months back. Back in March I was very ill for over a week. I kept having to sleep in the afternoon and had no energy. I contacted the doctor who said that it probably wasn’t COVID and I was never tested. However at that time knowledge of the virus was limited and in retrospect I think that it is highly likely that I did have the virus. Hope you and those you love stay safe and well Lorraine. Kevin

    Thanks Kevin. That is very sad. Fortunately we are in an area that has not been too badly affected by it. But it sadly, cases are rising now. It is worrying. It is strange but at the end of March, I had the strangest cold that I have ever had. It began with getting a very croaky voice and throat, but my throat was not sore. I coughed a bit, but no temperature. One day I was in bed with terrible leg pain, though I do get that sometimes with my condition. But this throat thing would not go. I had terrible pains in my head one day, and ankind of s eezy nose and a bit blocked. Also a bit of diarrhoea. Of course, no tests then but Indid wonder because I was exhausted and it is the strangest cold I ever had. It took over a month to get better and I still have a strange chesty cough. But they said if I got it I would die, so was shielded. Yet whatever it was did not kill me. Istill went out for drives in the car. Weird.

    OMG Val. I hope your niece and her kids get well soon. Oh dear! You stay safe if you can Val. It is funny how we can become a bit complacent. We did, until recently. We thoughtt it was going, but it came back. In our town I mean. Ugh! Xx

    Oh dear Carol. That is terribly sad. I am so sorry. Yes, we didn’t know, at first, the long reaching effects of it. It is a truly terrible time. Are you still in the library? Do you get anxious? We have little contact with people. Only one or two, masked, in our garden. Let’s pray it all goes away soon. Take care Carol. Prayers for you ❤️

  14. Yes, my mental nurse had it back in April and so did practically everyone, clients and staff, in the home below mine. One man died of it. Still, I see people, icnluding myself, consider it a far-off thing.

  15. I know of two of my wife’s colleagues at work who had positive antibody tests which showed they had the virus, but had no symptoms. One of my best friends died of the virus in May. He was in hospital for treatment for something else, contracted the virus, tested positive, and died 4 days later. He was 72 years old, and will never see his unborn granddaughter. Don’t let anyone tell you it doesn’t exist. There are a lot of mad theories going the rounds online these days.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    Thanks Pete. I remember about your friend. So sad. Didn’t know about Julie’s. Co workers though. It is horrible. Yes, I have read many of thesebtheories on Facebook. But also, we had had so few cases here and it lulled us into a false sense of security I think. Time to be mire careful I reckon! Xx

    Yes I know. Hubby keeps saying the first wave never finished anyway! I don’t like to think of it too much as I can’t take too much doom and gloom right now, with my deteriorating body and health. Been trying to be upbeat, but you can’t deny thevdamned thing is out there. Xx

    Yes I am more vulnerable. It became so tiresome though, not,living at all. We did become more lax, like having someone in our garden, no mask on. He gave me a much needed hug too, though he is tall, and I was down in my wheelchair, and he just pulled my head onto his side and put his arm around me for a while. It was the best hug I had ever had lol. So very very needed 😀

    That is very true Sheree. That is a bit of a comfort. And yes, all the extra testing may well be the reason we are seeming to get more cases. I must remember that. Hubby keeps telling me this 😀
